Knicks shooting guard Wayne Ellington is out for Saturday's matchup against the Indiana Pacers with a sore left Achilles, the team announced.
Ellington has appeared in 18 of the team's 22 games this season, but is averaging just over 14 minutes per game in his first year with the Knicks. He's in the midst of the worst year of his 11-season NBA career, averaging career lows in field goal, free throw, and three-point percentage, and has reached double-figures in points just twice.
Allonzo Trier, who fell out of the rotation during the second half of November, has appeared in the last two games and could see more minutes in Ellington's absence. Damyean Dotson should also get more of an increased role when the Knicks tip-off against the Pacers at 7:30 p.m. at Madison Square Garden.
